Expanse, an Ethereum based blockchain platform for smart contracts, has made an exciting announcement concerning its partnership with CHCK-N for ICO Management Services. 

CHCK-N, named by the Wall Street Journal as providing “…a new level of social media marketing,” has partnered with scores of internationally known liquor brands and venues to reward consumers with free drinks in exchange for their selfies. Now the company partners with Expanse team.

The Check-In Bar partnership is an important development for Tokenlab (LAB) and Expanse (EXP) investors, as it adds immediate worldwide exposure and utility for Expanse. By providing ICO management services for Check-In Bar, we become a vehicle that helps enable their creation of a technological marketplace for the most demanded currency of the new age—emotions.

In its turn, CHCK-N chose to go with Tokenlab for ICO management services for many reasons, such as the stability of the Expanse blockchain technology and the breadth and depth of experience of the team members, as Ali Balaban, CHCK-N Co-founder, claims. 

As my co-founder, Lev Filimonov, and I began the ICO exploration process, we repeatedly heard that Expanse and Tokenlab were solid yet innovative—reputation and integrity go a long way when making such an important decision that impacts the future of our business.

Thus, the Tokenlab ICO is to take place over the next 6-8 weeks. Once complete, the CHCK-N ICO will take over.
